The Journeys of Paul 19/24

The Journeys of Paul 19/24 published on No Comments on The Journeys of Paul 19/24

Cameos: characters from Peach Girl, including Momo, Sae, and Touji.

Enrico here is quoting Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 11, verses 14-15. (And not listening to himself at all.)

Enrico: Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory?

Centurion: ‘Scuse me…

Youse’re gonna hafta come wiv’ us now.

Enrico: But…but…!

I have six cell groups in Corinth! I have hundreds of converts ready to fight for me!

Heinkel: Do you have a “Centurion sympathizer” card?

Enrico: No…

Heinkel: Then you’re going to jail, boss.

Alex: Isn’t it a bit early for fighting? The Catholic church hasn’t even been properly established yet…

Enrico: It’s good practice for the Crusades. And the Inquisition. And Hellsing.

Alex: That’s true.

Enrico: Hey! Don’t practice on my churches!

Seras vs. Star Wars fans

The clerk is the same one from the manga, in the Rio hotel.

If I had a vampire like Alucard, I’d make him do this for me all the time.

[In the ticket line for Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.]

Seras (thinking): Walter sure does get into this “cosplay” thing…It’s a pretty amazing effort, when you think about it. I guess it just shows that he’s a true fan.

Peanut gallery: Hey! Star Wars came out two weeks ago! What kind of fans are you?

Seras: Well, maybe some of us have been busy saving your lousy butts from vampires all week!!

Walter: Thank you, Seras.

Seras: Jerk.

Pip: Look on the bright side…we get in free!

Alucard: We have the tickets you’re looking for…

Clerk: Move along.

Cameos: some of them appear to be from Vampire Game again, but darned if I remember who the rest are.

[swish clash CLANG]

Enrico: Our religions are only cult-sized, and they’re trying to have a holy war…

Heinkel: (sniff) I’m so proud!

The Journeys of Paul 16/24

Enrico’s quoting Paul’s letter to the Ephesians in the first panel (although he gets a little off track with it), and again in the third panel. (So they’re in Ephesus right now.)

Cameos: …I think that’s supposed to be young Ishtar on Darres’s back (Vampire Game), but I couldn’t swear to it.

Enrico: And, wives, submit to your husbands…actually, women in general shouldn’t be in charge at all…especially not of rival organizations…

Heinkel: Excuse me.

Enrico: Do you mind? I’m trying to establish a church here.

Heinkel: So am I.

Enrico: Oh. Well, in that case…

Okay, believers — remember what I told you about using the “Sword of the Spirit”?

The Journeys of Paul 15/24

Enrico’s objection is historically nonsensical, given that at this period in history most believers in Christ considered themselves Jewish.

Enrico: I’m going to keep building a church.

Oh no, not again?

Card: Jewish Leaders Spread False Rumors

Alex: But you can counter that one with your “Jewish Leader sympathizer” card.

Enrico: And take aid from a heathen? Never!

The Journeys of Paul 13/24

The Journeys of Paul 13/24 published on No Comments on The Journeys of Paul 13/24

Cameos: Hikaru, Sai, Akira, and Yuki (Hikaru no Go).

Alex: So I have three “cell groups” in Corinth…

Enrico: And once you get seven, you have an established church. Unless I establish one first, that is.

Yumiko: What does your card say?

Enrico: “Inspiration. (Gain one additional cell group when you build church.)”

Enrico: God only loves those who follow His church…England is full of heathens…Don’t wear white shoes after labor day…

Crowd: Oooh, ooh, ahh…

Sketchbook: Single Panel Gags

Erin: In which we see some random gags of mine, one where the punchline does better with no setup. (They’re in reverse chronological order, by the way: newest first.) And in which we also see why Erin doesn’t mouse-draw speech bubbles.

Pip: I’m all for kinky, but…
Seras: *chew chew chew*

[Why Integra keeps her hair long.]

I was on a short-haired-Integra drawing kick for a little bit. What can I say? She’s a babe with short hair.

Integra: Get your eyes off my neck.

Alucard: You know, the cigar is more or less the most well-known phallic symbol.
Integra: This from the vampire who won’t stop asking for bigger guns.

This last one’s a piece of Shine history; I used it in one of the first plugs for the strip, on the Hellsing LJ community.
